Well I'll never post a photo of a bow again.

That is absolutely unreal. Gorgeous work!

Most excellent!using a r/d limb profile is quite genius!
Some like motorboats,I like kayaks,some like guns,I like bows,but not the wheelie type.

Thanks again for all the compliments. These kind of builds take me a long time but I really enjoy it. I have a couple of really perfect staves lying around but somehow I always take the gnarly ones first ;D

Very nice!
I love that shape!
Where does it start to bend? The fades looking quite stiff.
I have a similar Profil on a brunch of purple leaf plum, that's why I'm asking

Thanks!
The fades are actually working quite a bit, even the handle flattens out a tiny amount at full draw. I tried to get the whole limb working because it is easy to create a hinge in the deflexed part because the leverage is a bit different then on normal straight handle bows.

Thank you leonwood,
I appreciate your replys a lot (not to forget all the others)
So, to get as less stress, to the wood, as possible is the best for this curves.

Thanks to you and simons I'm going to work on my Sudbury again...
Entering this forum is something like tbb5. As this is for free I hope I can help or inspire someone as well,....someday.
Sometimes I feel like, asking too much for what I have to give.
